looking back to my future

My grandmother 2 square smALL
Great Grandmother Ada Martha small fileLooking back recently, photos of my  grandmother taken in 1904, pretty starched frilled bonnet and beautiful wide innocent eyes.  Then a photo of my great  grandmother taken around 1900 in Russia,  not long before her death at the age of 34.   So young, to die, with 5 children too, how sad.  She looks so serene, so beautiful.  I dont know much about her only what I have drawn from census information and birth, marriage and death certificates, she died in the UK.  However from what I know all the children, grandchildren and so on  are all very creative.   Through  research I have met many people with the Swindlehurst name and the vast majority are  in the creative arts, architects or designers.  I have my creativity from both sides of the family, maternally and paternally, a double whammy!!

Knowing my genes come from such talented people gives me a real sense of what great gifts have been passed down to me,  and to my very talented children………….  and hopefully one day to theirs
